Favorite thing: A beach everybody should visit is the wonderful Voidokoilia beach, outside of Pylos, near Gialova. There are 2 ways to get there: you take the road to Erodios camping and at the dead end you leave the car (there is a small bridge and a lake on your right hand) and you walk for about 10 min. through a path full of bushes--beware of the many snakes around!!!--At some point you get to see nothing but sand (no water, no beach no nothing) and you feel like you're in the Shahara! But right there, over a small sandy cliff you finally get to see the wonderfull circle shaped beach! The other way to get there is taking the main road to Gargalianoi and reach by car. I suggest the walk through the path, though you have to be really careful! It is scary, though rewarding in the end!!!
Fondest memory: The area around Pylos is full of archaeological Mycenaic sites. Don't miss them for anything!

Favorite thing: In this beautiful bay took place in 1827 the famous battle between british-french-russian and the otomans.
There are boats that take you on a tour around the bay, in its crystal clear waters you can see still some of the shipwrecks.
Favorite thing: Nestor's Palace ruins, a big 2 storey micenian palace, keeps the original layout drawn by the 1 meter rests of the walls.
17 km north of Pilos, take the bus to Kyparissia
